Scope and content:
This project series documents Cornelie Hahn Oberlander's landscape project for the University of British Columbia's Faculty Club, a social club providing accomodation and recreation for members of the Society, in Vancouver. The Faculty Club is located on the northern edge of the University of British Columbia's campus and overlook the Burrard Inlet and the North Shore Mountains. Oberlander worked on this project from 1956-1959 with architect Fred Lasserre and later architect Arthur Erickson in 1963. During the first phase of the construction in 1956, Oberlander designed the parking area, the upper terrace, and garden with a water feature of water cascading into a series of square basins. For the second phase of the design, Oberlander worked with architect Arthur Erickson, who connected the water feature to a larger pool situated next to a new pavilion. In 2008, the Faculty Club was converted into classrooms and Oberlander was hired to revitalise the planting areas around the club.

The project series contains sketches for the upper terrace, design development drawings, including landscape plans, grading plans and planting plans, presentation drawings and working drawings, including building plans used for reference. The project series also includes photographs.
